Shine, we agree on a LOT more than you think! We are actually way more alike than different.

I am having a hard time understanding why some folks rebel against something as simple as safety. Alright - don't wear the safety gear, that's your choice - just don't try to justify that choice to the rest of us here. Most, not all of us try to work safely and want to continue working. I'll trade you a couple of 'dead spots' on my right eye from steel chips - and those - they were 'obtained' with safety glasses and goggles - but unfortunately NOT the chemical closed vent version of goggles. A few days of wearing an eye patch on my dominant eye, no fun. Couldn't work, drive, watch TV, read - just sit and vegetate.

And this thread is 45 or so posts worth, some of these posts - totally useless, irresponsible and ridiculous!!!

Here is some choice safety reading, and especially about eye protection:

Another thread gone to crap from trollish behavior. I will clean this up and if there are no objections, send it to the tools/shop forum (Monday) where most of the safety related posts are placed. Argument for the sake of an argument is easy, it happens every day on the playground at every grade school in America. I do have better things to do and I am getting weary of being a school grounds monitor. 100,000 + members on this site and there is always a few troublemakers, guess that's why I make the big bucks....$00.000.

On second thought, this is a good thread for the Basics. I have cleaned the thread up, sent the garbage to the dump. Troll comments and responses to the troll comments were edited, hopefully no one will be offended by me removing the responses.

My grand son is 9y/o he automatically speaks in a LOUD voice when he trys talking to me, and more and more lately, he doesn't even try anymore, that breaks my heart,,
I have a set of the latest teck hearing aids on the way,, 8500.$ sure hope they work,,, my wife will be easier to get along with too I hope

I have really never hurt my eyes, but have come close enough to realize that I shouldnt have done that.......

My biggest mistake of my working life was not protecting my hearing. I worked for years in factory settings with machine noise etc....Now, I have a lot of hearing loss, so much so that I have to wear hearing aids.......Something also to think about.

Personal Protective Equipment



Read this and notice that many jobs require two forms of eye protection, a good example is grinding when you need to wear goggles and a face shield.

http://www.osha.gov/dte/library/ppe_...l#eye_and_face

In the PetroChemical industry the rules are pretty simple; You are required to take training on the PPE required for the job, if you get caught not wearing the proper PPE for the job, you are fired.

OSHA rules are written in blood.

I'm an Army medic, seen too many "tough" guys with no eye pro that are now blind. They weren't working on cars, but shrapnel probably moves around as fast as metal kicked off from a 20 amp grinder. Just saying, it's pretty important. Ask these guys. Ask me. Protection(armor) kept my chest from being Swiss cheese from a rocket that landed too close for comfort. just saying....

ouch

Thats a perfect example of the protection a face shield provides. If you had a face shield like the riot cops, you may not have had a scratch. Appreciate your service Man. olNolan

I can't "compete" with the more graphic photos

This is what happened to my dead blow hammer a few minutes ago. That big chip - made a mark on my right glasses lens (luckily it came off). I can only imagine how I would be enjoying my stay in the local E-room about now instead of typing this:



That hammer is a USA made Compocast that has just been cut in half and trashed - R.I.P.. It will be replaced the next trip to a decent tool supplier.

That's why I love my job. Been an Army medic for 10 years and never looked back!
On another note, Jeez Ireland, WTF were you doing to that dead blow? I have beat some hammers in my day, but that's crazy! Looks like you were beating on a running sawmill!

Wow! Definitely good you had the glasses on! Your face will heal, but imagine what it would have done to your eyes!
Thanks for posting, and thanks even more for what you do for a living! We really appreciate all you guys!

Nothing spectacular - a disc brake rotor on my truck and right on the pad flat. My guess - that hammer was old and it had served me well - and it was just time
